George Carlin Video: The Truth About Wall Street And Washington

Truth and profanity warning.  Pass it on.

Carlin the truth teller on education, the lack of honesty and accountability from politicians, the sickening power of Wall Street lobbyists, corporate control over Washington, regulatory capture, and political corruption.   All the themes you know and love.

TRANSCRIPT

But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason it will never, ever,  EVER be fixed.

It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you’ve got.

Because the owners, the owners of this country don't want that. I'm talking about the real owners now, the BIG owners! The Wealthy… the REAL owners! The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions.

Forget the politicians. They are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying,  lobbying, to get what they want.  Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I'll tell you what they don’t want: 

They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. Thats against their interests.

Thats right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that!

You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shitty jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fucking place! Its a big club, and you ain’t in it!  You, and I, are not in the big club.

By the way, its the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care! Good honest hard-working people; white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don’t give a fuck about you….they don’t give a fuck about you… they don’t give a FUCK about you.

They don’t care about you at all… at all… AT ALL.  And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Thats what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick thats being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth.

Its called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.

@Eric

Yes, it's tin-foil stuff and over the top to some extent, but HIS OVERALL message that Washington is owned by the LOBBYISTS and NOT THE VOTERS is hard to refute.

It's not as shadowy as he makes it out to be, but K Street has helped Wall Street own Washington. The proof is all around you.

well, once again, the typical reaction, was that george carlin, was right-on with his commentary, of course, he was, but the better question is do we continue to let this gang of organized criminals continue to steal us blind, to rape our country, to murder its citizens, while they, grow fat and rich, this meltdown we have suffered through, they should be publicly executed, or worse horsewhipped! When they are ever brought to justice, do they suffer like a common thief would no, they get a slap on the wrist, While the rest of us, just continue to lead lives of quiet desparation, Just remember my fellow Americans, when your grandchildren are old enought to ask, What did you do, to stop the destruction of our country, Oh, my well, i wrote a blog!! Baby boomers unite there is a spectre haunting this country, and spectre is communism!!!!

There is always a cycle to all of this madness...we have not experienced it yet in the good old U.S.A. but our time will come. It won’t be anyone that is alive to today that will causes it to happen. It will be our grandchildren that do something about it. The French did it after they ate enough "Cake"! When the middle class completely disappears the balance of power will get redistributed as it has before. History will, and always will repeat itself. Rest assured it eventually will, most likely the day we can not afford electricity to run our TV's. We will wake up and say enough is enough “excuse me, but I am taking what's was stolen form me back!” The walls around the upper classes houses will not be tall enough to keep the rats from climbing over!

George Carlin has always been on the mark and as one of those 60's people, baby boomer, hippie or as I like to refer to our generation The Travelers. You know it is hard to sit back and watch all the things we fought to change go right down the toilet. Carlin was right, it is the control of the powerful few that we end up catering to and it will probably never change. Randy thinks it is crap well let me say this, it's that kind of thinking that has created the mess we are in. As young out spoken adults we tried to make a point and all we got was Kent State and other tragedies that put an end to the movement. The only way to make a point and take it back is to get get rid of the baggage and all the silly little causes and go back the basics and take back what every legal citizen of this country is entitled to. Carlin can't do it but the citizen collective can. If we don't the future for the people of this country is going to be disastrous. God Bless George for his honesty and insight he will be missed.

I'm 83 and I mourn every day that Carlin was taken much too soon. Such insightful commentary will be sorely missed.
Sep 24, 2009 at 1:37 AM | Unregistered Commenterbob davis
Carlin was right about it all and sadly he had to go do stand up at a bigger stage, but he left a long list of ideas and insight we should to take to heart and mind. There's a little truth in every joke they say, and the joke is on us. As long as we vote in people that can afford the milliions and billions of dollars to run for offices, then they don't represent the masses. They don't give a crapola about the every day Joe or Jane. And they'll do practically anything to maintain their job and screw everything else. The prev. vid and IG is just a small sample of tax money being wasted and filtered through the pockets of the politicians. I bet she knows how much her last 10 pairs of shoes cost at Gucci.

Wall Street also owns show business and makes sure that only the right kind of people get sucess...people like Carlin...Wall Street also funded the 1960´s "counter-culture" (that Carlin loves so much) and they also funded the Russian Revolution (read Antony Sutton).

Wall Street = George Carlin and George Carlin = Wall Street

You're wrong about virtues of Christianity
And you're wrong if you agree with Sean Hannity
If you think that pride is about nationality, you're wrong

You're wrong when you imprison people turning tricks
And you're wrong about trickle down economics
If you think that punk rock doesn't mix with politics, you're wrong

You're wrong for hating queers and eating steers
If you kill for the thrill of the hunt
You're wrong 'bout wearing fur and not hating Ann Coulter
Cause she's a cunted cunt

You're wrong if you celebrate Columbus Day
And You're wrong if you think there will be a Judgement Day
If you're a charter member of the NRA, you're wrong

You're wrong if you support capital punishment
And you're wrong if you don't question your government
If you think her reproductive rights are inconsequent, you're wrong

You're wrong fighting Jihad, your blind faith in God
Your religions are all flawed,
You're wrong about drug use, when its not abuse
I hope you never reproduce

You're getting high on the downlow
A victim of Cointelpro
You're wrong and will probably never know

But Reagan and Fox news say that all of our economic problems are because of the lazy poor who get hand-outs. My pastor at church told us that Jesus loves the rich. The rich deserve to be rich and the poor deserve to be poor because the rich are better Christians. He said we should be grateful that we have such wise and benevolent rulers. And my pastor couldn't lie because he is a man of God. Jesus wouldn't let him lie or do anything bad. There is not one place in all of recorded history where a Christian has ever done anything wrong. Otherwise, Fox news would have reported it since Fox news is fair and balanced. Just look at how Jesus made Bush president. That shows that Christianity must be right. And so, isn't it devil-worship to question the legitimacy of the wealthy who rule over us since it was Jesus who put them there?
Yes sir. It is great being Christian because you get to be right all of the time.

“Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain's majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.”

Oh yes, George Carlin was right on the money with his observations back in March 2009!!! It is now Feb 28,2011, and the master is speaking again, this time from the grave. We can now posthoumously appoint him "Spiritual King of the World", for he was brave enough to speak out against his, ok, our government and the criminal activities that go on between politicians, bankers, Wall Street, and the academia fools. Cheers to you, George. No wonder I liked you so much. You told the truth, and you put teeth into it to inspire those of us left behind to work on fixing what's wrong. Feb 27, 2011 may become a turning point in US and World History, with the Academy Award that was presented to the Documentary film "Inside Job", which will reveal and bring worldwide awareness of the dishonest and greedy actiions taken by those in power, in charge of ruling us (government), in charge of managing the nation's money(Federal Reserve and Banking), in charge of the uneducated, helpless work force (unions), all in collussion to keep the money for themselves.

George Carlin - cynicism with a smile.
He spoke the words felt by many. He feared no one. A worthy successor to Lenny Bruce.

Take note, for example, of Wisconsin's recent attempt to gut the ability of teachers' unions. Teachers get very good benefit packages, yes. On the other hand, they are comparatively poorly paid when their salaries are compared to those of their peers in the private sector. Seems fair to me that the long-term short income be recompensed at retirement time. And now Illinois is reorganizing public sector retirement funding.

So it starts with employees in the public sector. Where will this slippery slope end?
"They're coming after your vanishing pension - which disappears as soon as you go to collect it."
Why? Obviously, so that capable, competent 'obedient workers' can be kept in harness for a few more productive years. And for whose benefit? Obviously, the owners - er - stockholders.

I foresee that this will not end well...

98% of us know he was right yet we sit here day after day and do nothing! Well i guess it's only fair to say we truely have been demoralized enough to believe we are worthless and deserve everthing we get which is nothing. All this talk will get us what exactly? How bad does it have to get to cause mass uprisings? I am starting to believe that we will never revolt because we are too fat, lazy, ignorant, optomistic or all of the above. It seems that this george was not the only visionary cause orwell was right on the money as well, welcome to 1984 everyone!

Today is another time. I grew up on this...

Years of watching clean humor of Johnny Carson then the exact opposite - Don Rickels. Where a Jewish comedian would insult every race that was possible to insult and it was comedy. Today organizations like the ADL make it so any remarks about the Jewish are anti-Semitic.

This would include but not limited to the War Crimes committed with US Weapons upon the 100% Civilian people of GAZA who neither Army, Navy, Marines or Air-Force but are called "Terrorist's" because they fight for their land and property.

Perhaps American's might better understand a Bad Joke more should the day someone arrives on their porch and says, "You are on my land, my Bible says its mine so get off!" Oddly this is being done in all parts of America as Millions and Millions of people are having these same BANKS who print paper money backed by more paper money who are embedded in the worlds greatest ponzi schemes of theft, interest rigging and the laundering of hundreds of billion of drug cartel monies and there hasn't been 1 single indictment.

Yet if I were to point this out it would be anti-Semitic because as Carlin points out... Who is running these Banks, Non-Federal Federal Reserve and you can add the US Police State as Israeli Forces now train all US Law Enforcement. The Joke is over.
